Abstract

Clinical as well as radiologic diagnosis of infantile fibrosarcoma (IFS) is often a challenging problem due to similarities with tumors of vascular origin. Consequently, in the majority of cases, histological and immunohistochemical studies are considered gold standards for the final diagnosis. The two case reports and the review of literature discussed should increase the important features in the history and the presentation that increase the index of suspicion for IFS, as well as it highlights the important characteristics of imaging and laboratory studies that confirm its diagnosis.
